Heliopolis closed in January 2016, after hosting costs for the then 18 year old archive rose beyond my means to maintain them. This site, while a labor of love, was a huge time and monetary commitment. I have maintained the domain ever since, though, because I loved what it represented, what this site was to me, too much to let it go.
I still get regular inquiries about the site and its stories. I am considering throwing up a read-only version of the archive based on whatever backups that I have. It probably won’t be everything, but it will make a few people happy, including me.
